Does anyone know of a good Chrome OS client to run iPython notebooks? I tried CoLaboratory but wasn't able to load an existing notebook; additionally, the service has been discontinued.

Not a ChromeOS client but Sage Math Cloud is a good place to run IPython plus a bunch of other educational tools https://cloud.sagemath.com/

Interesting that Inbox isn't yet supported on Edge. Gmail works fine, but not Gmail.

If this article is correct and Google does intend to increase offline functionality for Chromebooks, then I would like to see it encourage manufacturers to ship devices with at least 4 GB of RAM. For power users, that capability should have the capacity to increase to 8 GB.
Critics of the Chromebook mistakenly believe that once offline, users can’t do anything. This isn’t true and Google is taking steps to make that clear.

"But..if I start my document on my home wifi then finish it on a hotspot or 4G is it a seamless transition."

+Nate Schmolze  Well Nate, if that was a question, my answer would be, Yes, it is a seamless transition.  I regularly keep 3 or 4 documents open on my Samsung 303 ARM and edit them offline, and when I get to a WiFi hot spot, sync kicks in and "Everything is saved to Drive".  Never lost a character of text in 23 months of use.  YMMV

I love that Google keeps adding more and more features their location-based software but, after a month and a half, they still can't figure out that I use a transit train, not a bus.

I love the new Google Spreadsheets! To Googlers: great job on the update and thank you for offline access!

Using Twitter or Google+ on a 2GB RAM Chromebook is painful.

I'm glad to see they're making 4GB models now because that should be the norm. #chromeos #chromebook

My first reaction to the news from Microsoft regarding One Drive storage plans is not good. Reducing the free cap from 15 to 5 GB will not earn you any friends. I understand that the move is intended to convert users to Office 365, but I think that will also come up lacking. None of this is helped by the absence of a Windows 10 sync client that utilizes the concept of "smart files". #microsoft #onedrive #cloud

When I have an internet connection, the folders show up, but they disappear when I'm offline. I'll log it in the product forms regardless

I love my Surface Pro! It's light enough to carry on my daily travels yet powerful enough to complete any task I might be given. Additionally, it operates without compromises when disconnected frying the internet. #microsoftsurface

After three hours and multiple attempts, all my documents, photos, videos, and emails are of Google servers. I wish I could say it was easy, but that would be a gross deception

Has anyone heard when, or if, old Spreadsheets will be able to be converted to the new format?

I would like to see Microsoft leverage Azure and Office 365 to create and deploy a kick-ass "full Office in the cloud" product. Imagine: For $100-$150 per year, a user could, through any browser, have access to all their files in SkyDrive and the complete Office suite through a connected Azure site.

There are two routes to take with regard to pricing and offerings; the first would take the form of a tiered-access system: "Basic" would include Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. "Advanced" would add Outlook and Access. "Premium" would add Lync and Visio. Any other products could be added to "Advanced" or "Premium" accounts for a nominal fee. A second possible pricing methodology could be the "a-la-carte" approach where each user, upon account creation or activation, adds access to an individual productivity program for a nominal fee (ie., $10 for Word, $10 for Excel, $25 for Access). These fees, when summed, would create the annual account fee for the user. Mid-year cancellations and additions would be possible on a pro-rata basis.

This is an intellectual exercise, as I understand that this would seriously disrupt the traditional income streams for Microsoft. However, this approach would aggressively combat both the rise of Google Drive and the notion that Microsoft is too Windows-dependent. There are many businesses and individuals that use Office and do so productively. If Microsoft could give them the piece of mind that Office will be available to them regardless of platform or browser selection, it is possible that many more may stay. #microsoft   #office365   #azure

We weren't sure what to expect from this place, as it's location has been occupied by a rotating collection of short-lived restaurants and bars. It's a great bar and very popular with the locals. They have a very good selection of beers on taps and the food is very good. I would suggest trying this place for happy hour or a fun dinner out to a local spot.

It doesn't look like much but this is one of the best Korean bars in the area! The food is excellent and the drinks are very well-made.

We were looking for a cheap hotel to stay for one night after getting into town late. From the outside, the hotel looks like it hasn't been renovated in more than 10 years; it takes the form of most other cheap motels, with front doors opening to the outside. The interior of the rooms is spartan and retro, looking like it belongs more in the 50s than the modern age. The internet was terrible, almost non-existent, which seemed to symbolize the facade of this motel. A lack of a continental breakfast cemented the negative reflections of this location.

We stopped here on one of our roadtrips and didn't have high expectations; the facility is located 10-12 miles from the freeway and the route leads through small towns and barely operating farming communities. From the moment we passed through the main gate, we couldn't be more wrong in our expectations. A winding road with excellent views of the surrounding hillside and distant mountains gives way to a modern visitor center. I highly recommend a photo of Mount Rainier framed between some of the wind turbines; it can chill your spine with beauty and surreality. Once inside the visitor center, helpful exhibits and infographics will explain the history, function, and efficacy of the renewable energy sources at the facility. I encourage every visitor to dive into all the center offers, including a Power Point presentation with a knowledgeable staff member who is very patient with questions. All in all, we are very glad we stopped here and I'm glad knowledge facilities such as this exist for the public.
